At approx 8:30 Wednesday morning I took my first deer with a military rifle. I was using one of my accurized loaded M1As and my handloads of 39 grs IMR 4895 with Nosler 168 BT bullets. The Ballistic Tip is an excellent bullet dropping the 6 pt right in his tracks.
I will head back to the camp Saturday afternoon after the weather clears a bit and will be taking my other accurized loaded M1A along with a Winchester M1 Garand and Remington 03.
I believe I will concentrate on hunting with the M1. I would love to take a deer with a 65 year old war horse.
Retirement is nice. I only have to come home every two weeks to get the mail and pay bills.
Good deal. Let us know how you do with the Garand.
